Rockford REV Poetry Slam 2017
Fri, April 21, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM CDT
For the past 7 years, the Poetry Ninjas of Jefferson High School have hosted a school wide slam in the spring to celebrate National Poetry Month.
This is a chance for students to express their own unique voices and perspectives with their peer and their community.
Poetry is not a dead art that lives in the textbooks of the English classroom. It is a means to discuss universal issues and connect with others in a challenging form.
With these ideas in mind, the Poetry Ninjas have decided to make this a region-wide event to share the power of poetry with more high school students.
This event is open to high school student poets only. Home schooled poets of high school age are eligable to compete as well.
